lyrics

let me be a living statue holding all that life does send let me be a living statue knowing when to brace or bend the eye within the hurricane the spire within the spiraling storm a gauge of love’s eternal promise whispered through each dawning morn
let me be a living statue stark against indifference let all life move through me freely joy and sorrow pure, intense let me know the faith that knows no bounds no meager-more my chosen sound the sound of exultation ever-upward countenance
though the jagged winds despair to ever rise above the sound so the human soul in rising up still panics that we’ll drown
as you flowed through those before me now I separate my rings I consider this the lily I accept all that this brings facing fully to the wind not turning from the hardest parts let me be a living statue fearless, though my pounding heart
let me be a living statue holding all that life does send let all life move me freely joy and sorrow pure, intense let my blessings simply be to know each moment blessing me let me be a living statue a pillar of love’s firmament
let me be a living statue holding all that life does send let me be a living statue knowing when to brace or bend let my blessings simply be to know each moment blessing me and let me be a living statue holding all that life does send
